A court heard that Coleman allegedly attacked his friend with a golf club on Thursday at a leaving him with serious injuries to his head and face.

A solicitor for the 18-year-old accused told Lisburn Magistrate’s Court that both men had been drinking and taking substances and both were “quite out of it” at the time of the alleged attack.

Bail was refused and Coleman was remanded in custody to Hydebank Young Offenders Centre.
